Street Sweeping

City of Vancouver streetsweepers help keep debris out of our stormwater system

Residential streets in the City of Vancouver are swept approximately every eight or nine weeks, except during severe weather.

Street sweeping helps keep sediment, leaves and other debris and pollutants out of the stormwater system, which generally flow to our creeks and rivers. And it helps prevents localized street flooding due clogged drainage catchbasins.

Street sweeping is a service of the Public Works' Operations Center Stormwater team, protecting our community's water resources and increasing the livability of our city.

Street sweeping schedules are posted here and on the Vancouver Public Works Facebook Page. For easy updates, like our page!
